One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks. Jack Penn


Stumbled On To Virtue

Be one of full and busy life
Cut through strife with mind of knife
Keep the good.......trash the foul
As optimist with high morale

When thoughts are harsh, and words would burn
Consider anguish.......lesson learned
Reach down and help those on the ground
With kindness...healing...will be... found

Forgive the heartless, and the vain
When you feel drenched in acid rain
Let peace invade the troubled soul
Send thoughts of hearts grown cold

Lady A aka Gutter Girl
